An Introduction to Cybersecurity Careers

November 12-17, 2018 is National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week! We're helping our friends at NICE celebrate this important initiative with free resources for K-12 students.

Developed for grades K-12, this module explains the cybersecurity skills shortage and encourages students to pursue a career in this growing field. It tackles industry stigmas and stereotypes head-on by outlining what cybersecurity professionals do, and the wide-variety of roles they can fill:

  • Graphic designer
  • Social engineering training
  • Network security admin
  • Social media consultant
  • Ethical hacker

  • The module also includes tips to help students prepare for a career in the field, including taking online courses, finding a mentor and participating in competitions like the Global Cyber Olympics.

    SecurityIQ education clients can share this module — along with three other security awareness modules for students — with K-12 learners at no cost. Click here to learn how you can teach your students to stay safe online with SecurityIQ awareness training.
